Say It Ain’t So: El Debarge Busted For Drug Possession — With Intent To Sell


Soulful singer El DeBarge was arrested for drug possession in L.A. yesterday and authorities are claiming that the crooner also had an intent to sell.

The “Rhythm of the Night” singer was busted around 2 PM in Encino, CA after LAPD officers observed him participating in what appeared to be a drug deal with another man on the near 101 Freeway.

According to police records, DeBarge was arrested for possession of narcotics with intent to sell. This is the 3rd time El has been arrested for drug possession since 2001.

He was taken to a nearby jail where he was booked and released on $30k bail. Debarge is due back in court next month to face a judge.

Coincidentally, El’s brother James is currently serving time behind bars after being arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and drug charges.

Some things unfortunately, just run in the family. Of course MSDTV will keep you posted.
